What is the current approximate price for MTO at the moment?
Ah, now I get what you mean!
Who is the Project Manager? I will sign in too.
I'd be interested in a group buy as well, depending on conditions.
Terrorsquad is facilitating this group buy. He posted a few posts earlier that he was going to email Meermin about a prospective group buy on the John Lobb Phillip II model.
the olfe actually! they really r gorgeous, i am so happy with my choice! thanks for the love
Yup, I'll be handling this. This will be the 6th group buy I'm handling, just finished a group buy for Vass so I'm free to handle this one.
Is there a comprehensive list of MTO options anywhere, or does Meermin simply produce what you request (within reason)? I'm curious about toe medallions, soles, colors available for both uppers and linings, etc.
See attached document, price/options as of August 2012. There are more leather options and Meermin is willing to add/cut extra patterns at extra costs. Not sure if they still are willing to adjust last at this time.
BINGO! Muchas Gracias.
Wow your olfe last looks a lot more round than my olfe last. Am I mistaking??
I'd be interested in this as well depending on what the final decision is.
I would appreciate some advice as I'm looking for some black cap toes/whole cuts and was eyeing the meermin classic oxfords
As I'm based in the UK, is it worthwhile taking the gamble with these or am I better off buying a pair off (and how do they compare to) Cheaneys/Loakes/Barkers (c&js aren't in my price range) or going to John rushtons to find something in the £100-200 range.
Meermins arrived today. Light brown double monk on the Hiro last. Pics:
Colour on the website doesn't really match what they are in real life. They're much more of a tan. I took photos in a few different rooms so the photos are pretty near to what they actually are which hopefully someone finds helpful. I haven't gone near any cream or waxes yet so that's just them out of the box.
Few minor marks on the left shoe like I've shown in the 4th picture but firstly they're not very noticeable and I don't really mind about them and honestly far worse marks are going to come from general wear and tear but this is the internet - so I'm obliged to be anal about these things.
Cost was €215. Shoes + VAT + trees + delivery.
